    I'm not sure if this is a Windows problem and I should be in that forum, or here in the "games" forum, but I'll ask anyway and maybe someone out there can help.

    We used to enjoy playing online games and all of a sudden we couldn't view the games anymore. One site sends an error message that there was a java error and other sites such as Iwon just download a blank screen. Sounds like I'm missing an application on my pc, but no clue as to which one or how to get things back to normal.

    I hope someone can help......

    There has been an issue where SUN sued Microsoft for modifying the original code (or something like that) of Java to make their own one. Most sites now will work only with the original Java from SUN. You can download it here.
